The hindu vote is divided. Each election reiterates this fact. There must exist many social, political & cultural reasons for it & experts have expounded on it. The first General Elections was largely a unified vote for the INC, winning 364 of the 489 contested seats.+
The vote share was only 45 % for the INC, ppl had overwhelmingly voted for the Congress!
In 2019, Modi led NDA won by a majority vote share of 45% ! So much for the Congress & state dynast parties raking up vote share! #Politics +
A hindu united vote is a dream of the BJP, but are they taking steps to realise it? Caste politics aside. Instilling a sense of oneness through shared history & tradition wd be the natural steps to achieve such a goal. A longer process, which must start at the school level.+

Carve out your own destiny,
They said!
But gave me a bag of clay!
How could I do anything,
When by their rules I was to play!

Change what you wish,
But keep everything the same!
Conditions such painfully untenable!
How can someone be so cruel,
And make us feel expendable!
As I walked along,
This path you told me was life!
Stumbled I did sometimes,
Attempting some dignity in strife!

How can one try
Try to he sane!
When we have already been,
Told nothing in the end will remain!

And they say it's not the destination,
Its a journey to the far beyond
How does one take time,
To ponder and respond to each demand!

Where is the energy,
Are you not tired?
As every story is the same!
Why is there then no synergy,
In what's with us, that you let remain!

Broken pieces,
Like shards of glass they pierce my heart!
Unable to bear.....

The biggest problem with our country is our resistance to accept excellence, right @albinder?

The second biggest is to jump to conclusions before we know the truth behind (aka, being trigger happy)

The third biggest is our omniscience!

I have been personally stunned at the new delivery standards set by @Grofers

Delivering groceries in 15 minutes, that too in the early nights (9pm afterward) is just unbelievably good.

Granted, they aren't "life-saver medicines"

But, as always, that is our false equivalence.

Didn't we hear about how X crores can be spent better in building hospitals, schools and not temples & stuff?

We are a nation with its unfair share of nay-sayers, who constantly berate achievements in any arena, by bringing in non-achievements in other arenas.

E-Vehicles may be non-polluting, but aren't they powered by electricity produced elsewhere using, even today, thermal & nuclear sources? So, would it be fair to say that they aren't visibly polluting or that they have a carbon footprint, nevertheless?
You don't have ONLY natural and clean sources, that is my limited point here

The cost of waste disposal, amortized (?) over millions of years need to be factored in too, I think!

Periodic Table is patriarchal. Why else will it make a funny mention of our monthly tryst with blood?

A period is not a full stop. It suggests possibilities of a new beginning. Whoever named the full stop as a period is surely an ignorant moron, and likely a patriarchal padre (who saw the period as a proof of celibacy).

The educational time table that calls each class as a period is also patriarchal and clueless. The periods aren't successive. There is a, well, period of fertility, between periods.

Surely idiotic, isn't it, when you get the drift!?

डोळे जरी पुढे असले तरी दृष्टी डोळ्याच्या मागे आहे... पुढे जरी दिसत असलं तरी मागून पाहिलं जातं आहे.. म्हणजेच पुढे आहे तो फक्त भ्रम आणि मागे आहे ते अनंत ऊर्जेच परम सत्य...🙏

If the Universe had to store the location of every particle before we looked at it, it would need more storage space and be less efficient.
Where does the Universe store all of the information?

The information is stored as holograms in the Dark Matter. (my idea).

What is Dark Energy?
— it's the leftover "soul-energy" from creatures that died (my idea).

Yes, I've been watching science shows.
— I answered the first two questions in the previous tweet.

01.01a/ Week 01 (Reconstruction), July 18-24 2020, Begins below. At week 6 (Aug 25 2020), I realized I should number things

and at week 13 I made each week into a separate thread. So for threading purposes, I want to recreate each week as a separate thread

13.01new/ I'm experimenting with a new procedure for my #RandomThoughts thread (linked below), which has gotten enormous and difficult to navigate. Each week I will make a separate thread & embed/link it in the original monster. Let's see if this works

13.02a/ We subscribe to the local NJ paper (Support Local News! Another Slogan!) & they invest heavily in Kings Feature & Creators Syndicate comics. As an amateur comics historian/artist, I have issues with the quality of both groups, but esp. with The Lockhorns & Andy Capp
13.02b/ I collect comic strip books (comics were a road not taken), my kids have a youth filled with some of the best (Calvin & Hobbes, Far Side, Cul de Sac, Citizen Dog, Peanuts) so the two martial strife comics are a jarring contrast.

Amongst the many little pleasures of life that are so underrated , #gardening tops my list .

It is astounding as to why I never tried my hand at it prior to 2019 despite being a #nature lover !
Oh! The joy it brings is unfathomable mostly! :))

From tending them with love to methodically pruning & feeding them , at times singing to them almost cajoling them to grow quickly to watching them dance ....

Life seems much more beautiful being around my tiny lil garden playing peekaboo my plants !!

The sweet scent of that freshly watered soil , the friendly banter I have with them whilst sipping on my morning tea , at times admonishing myself ; sometimes others ' ....
Sometimes just being ....
At times staring at the soil waiting for the shoots to appear !!

1/ I was trying to comfort a friend abt our situation b/c they were rightfully terrified that the US could turn into what's happening in Belarus right now (…)

There's a fine line b/w being aware & alert vs paralyzed with despair. Sadly, it's very hard to do
2/ Here is the litany of comforts I described about why I feel Trump (ym'sh) is likely to be defeated by Biden in the upcoming election.

(a) DJT incompetence
(b) October Surprises
(c) DJT Health
(d) Will of the People
3/ (A) DJT Incompetence: this has been clear from the start. The bad guys are terrible at being evil. The Ukraine Plot was stupid & it was foiled, leading to impeachment

The only reason DJT has been 'successful' in anything has been the well-oiled evil machine of current GOP

: ___ is a NSA creation. The IPO limited information to 200 characters. If the essence of Truth was 300 characters, conceptually it gives the platform more control to skew sentiment, perception and thought.
never forget:
*in a machine learning environment inputs go to the AGI.
Audio recording and manipulation:
your "noise gate" is an electronic regulatory device of the audio signal that can reduce the spectrum interference and even "delete" or "ban" signal ranges in the mix that is then pumped into the ears of the listener. ____ is language based.
Double Slit Theory: the Physics of Quantum Entanglement if you use this information as a template to understand "ancient" knowledge you could move "mountains". However, in the current state of post-modern academic learning, the "ancient" world has been hived off and reprogramed.

Sure, "polls aren't votes", but 15 pts down means Trump's (ym"sh) vulnerable, dries up fundraising, allows GOP electeds to contradict him publicly, allows reporters to treat him normally & not as the magician of 2016 who commands a cult of violent kooks.
To combat the complacency that the polling imbalance could bring, I suggest telling fellow anti-Trumpites that no matter how much DJT is down in November, when you vote, it will feel as good as punching him in the face with all of your strength

Himachal Futurustic started the year 1999 at 37. Ended at 675. In 2000, it peaked at 2578 before correcting nearly 75% of the move.
Since it was a relatively unknown stock (before the Richard Packer story broke), very few Investors were positioned in the stock.
Both Volumes and Price exploded in 1999 and upto the peak. The entire fall from the peak happened in just one month, April of 2000 when it lost 50% to end at 833.

Inner Peace is available to all of us, irrespective of caste, power, wealth status, etc... Etc... More Importantly its free to one and all..
Inner Peace cannot be purchased by any amount of Money... We can have all the wealth around us and still be miserable/unhappy due to lack of inner peace...

Inner Silence within is the substratum for living in the outer world..
Observe the Silence within at quiet place at regular intervals... You will be get many answers, solutions to your problems.. more importantly you will find bliss... A state of infinite happiness... It's a long journey... Be regular to this sadhana..

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
